2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

GM/Chevrolet produced a nice "two in one" vehicle with the Avalanche/Esclade EXT (although the AV is probably the better bang for the buck). Smooth ride and drives smaller than it looks. Steering is a bit loose, but doesn't pitch badly on turns. Brake pedal is spongy, but still stops well. People who complain about the mileage should buy a smaller 6 cylinder vehicle. Toyota Tundra doesn't do much better with less room. Acceleration is decent, but not overpowering. I've changed the exhaust to duals and it helps. Easy to change. Fun to drive and gets a lot of looks.

Best Features

Its ability to change from a comfortable SUV to full-size truck. Nice looking, although body hardware had to grow on me a bit. Nice sounding stereo and the heated seats are nice. Practical vehicle and seemingl well put together.

Worst Features

Offer the GM 6.0L engine for a bit more power without going to the 2500. More bass in the Bose sound system. Watertight rear cargo area vice water resistent, water management system. Leather seat (driver's side) is wearing badly on mine for a new vehicle.
